Abstract:The Navatek, Ltd. Team will successfully demonstrate the feasibility of using Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) materials to significantly reduce the weight of the (hull) structure of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV). We will use as a baseline for comparison our… more
Abstract:Navatek Ltd. will successfully integrate their Integrated Propulsion Pod (IPP) technology to provide dynamic motion compensation to manned and unmanned surface vehicles to facilitate safe and effective launch, tow and recovery of tow bodies for up to and including a sea state 4 condition at various… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a lighter, smaller and more efficient solid-state power amplifier for the JTIDS system that is flight qualified for the E2-D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft. Because space and weight is extremely critical aboard the E2-D Hawkeye… more
Abstract:The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a novel high-resolution instrument capable of penetrating and imaging live cells down to the 50 nm resolution level. This can provide further insights into the molecular makeup of cells and may open new avenues toward the… more
Abstract:This Phase II proposal presents the design and development approach for a distributed Doppler-radar network system for sense-through-the-wall intelligence collection. Phase I research successfully demonstrated the proof of concept and yielded a viable path of development that will culminate in the… more
Abstract:In response to Army topic A052-080-1968, Oceanit Laboratories has proposed the Hostile Fire Detection System (HFDS), which will detect attacks from close range weapons and locate enemy combatants. HFDS is based on Oceanit's patented MOST focal plane. It utilizes a time-intensity identification… more
Abstract:The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no… more
Abstract:Open-Ocean Aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several technical refinements the industry must undergo in order to maximize productivity and future expansion. We address a problem common to all off-shore open-ocean aquaculture cage systems, marine biofouling of… more
Abstract:A new approach is needed for effectively addressing the fundamental security requirement of authentication within a multi-national environment. The Cross Enclave Authentication Service (CEAS) will be secure, based upon the principle of `least privilege', with enforcement through discretionary and… more
Abstract:Technical Research Associates, Inc. proposes to develop Visualization Software for Multi- and Hyperspectral Imagery Exploitation. This Hyperspectral Visualization Environment (HVE) software will provide insight into hyperspectral and multi-spectral sensor data with maximum efficiency, by… more
Abstract:Current hyperspectral analysis, used to extract information related to nuclear fuel cycle signatures, relies on principal component and matched filter processing, which may not fully exploit all of the information in the data. This project will develop an innovative method for: (1) using… more
Abstract:Building upon the Edelman's Neural Darwinism and Damasio's brain model, we propose a framework for creating evolutionary and neurobiologically inspired computational platforms for autonomous vehicle control as well as for applications in the arena of ambient intelligence. Additionally, we propose… more
Abstract:An increasingly common military medical need is the need for in-the-field acquisition of symptomatology, differential diagnosis of diseases potentially previously unseen by the medical professional, and identification of symptoms to the population at large. This need suggests a combination of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current influenza vaccine production procedures (use of embryonated chicken eggs) inherently limit the amount of influenza vaccine that can be produced prior to each year's flu season. Most of the influenza vaccine sold is inactivated. Inactivation of the virus… more
Abstract:This proposal is in support of the requirement for a miniature, hyperspectral digital camera. Described is a compact, miniature system which is a dispersive, pushbroom HSI camera that is less than 5" x 3" x 2" in size, which directly interfaces to a notebook computer with USB 2.0 interface. It… more
Abstract:With bombings and explosions being the primary terroristic method, ongoing military related bombings, and other industrial accidents such as gas explosions, there is a need for a rapid and portable instrument for assessing blast-related pulmonary dysfunction. A similar, if not identical, instrument… more
Abstract:Gravity-induced loss of consciousness (GLOC) and almost loss of consciousness (ALOC) continue to be significant problems in high-speed flight, often causing loss of aircraft and aircrew personnel. Although technologies have been developed in an effort to prevent such GLOC related mishap, including… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
